Madame Milly french manicure kit: review

A very wise Aunty bought me this kit for christmas! Exactly what I had been looking for. I had never heard of this make so I had no expectations at all good or bad, which can only be a good thing.

I love this kit. Only have used it once but so far I love it. Comes with a nail file cuticle sticks base and top coats and the pink and white polishes. It also has nail stencils to help with the white tips but I don't use those because I'm not their biggest fan.

The polishes dry very quickly which I think is important in a kit like this that has stages so that you aren't waiting around for ages for it to dry.

This is the finished result done for going out on boxing night.

overall, I am highly impressed with this product! one of the nails has chipped slightly but that is my own doing, the nail varnish is very good quality and I would try and find more of these products.

What Santa brought....

So Santa came and went, wrapping paper was ripped open and discarded, and the turkey is just a pile of bones now. Christmas is truly over! Boo! I love Christmas as you may have guessed by the sheer amount of Christmas posts! Haha! Anyway I thought I'd post a few pics of what I got for Christmas as I know many people are very interested in these kind of posts, myself included!!

So these are all of my santa presents including an absolutely amazing pair of French connection gloves!!! Exactly what I was looking for! And an Elle subscription from my amazing sister! Best present ever!

This dress was also a gift from the big man! It's from primark though if you like it. I love it and it's exactly my style!!

Got this French manicure kit from my aunt an I have been looking one for Ages! Will use it tomorrow during boring old boxing day (yawn!) in prep for going out tomorrow night and then I'll write a review in a few days. But I have high hopes!

Also got a charm for my charm bracelet. It's a Thomas sabo one that I got back in April for my 18th birthday! I love this little charm, it's very cute!!

very grateful for all I got this Christmas, and very thankful for my family and friends. hope you all had an amazing Christmas.

Its Beginning to look a lot like christmas

the tree on the left is my university tree in our little flat! and the one on the right is my tree at home. I love decorating the Christmas tree,and seeing everyone's decorations makes me feel very festive, along with the baking i did this morning with my sister! One batch of raspberry ruffles and one batch of Rocky Roads, yummy!!

Couldn't be feeling more festive right now actually, snuggled up watching Christmas movies, ELF last night and miracle on 34th street this morning. two best Christmas films ever in my opinion. this will be my last post before Christmas, so happy Christmas everyone! I shall hopefully post pictures of my Christmas Dress, and my Boxing night dress which I finally got yesterday!
Hope Santa is good to everyone!

Dear Santa,

This is my "money-no-object" santa letter!
Or, in other words, the list of everything i've bookmarked online in the last few weeks.

This gorgeous dress, from Nasty Gal.com I love how soft the dress is, and i like how simple it is. i just think it is the perfect party dress for the Christmas season.

These Chelsea boots from Missguided. unsure whether I should get Brown or Black. they're both too lovely.

I'm hoping this is available for blackberry's but I'm getting an iPhone soon so this will be purchased then. its from society6 and they do some absolutely gorgeous phone covers.

How adorable is this little raindrop necklace from etsy? It would be the perfect present for someone, or even a little treat for yourself!

this Babyliss waving wand is the perfect thing I've been looking for in my quest for perfect wavy hair! available from amazon.

And last, but not least, the thing for the Doctor Who nerd I harbour inside. (Far too excited for the Christmas special!!!)

Most of my friends didnt find this as hilarious as me, because I found it too funny! its from Skreened.com and just something fun and jokey I laughed at.

So hopefully santa will realise that I've been very very good this year, and be nice to me!
Happy Christmas everyone!

Winter Wonderland Wishlist.

With all this cold weather, and more surely on the way, probably some snow too, its a perfect time to look at some faux fur.
I have a MASSIVE obsession with fur coats at the moment but haven't seen one I feel I want to part with money for. oh, being a poor student!
